IMO MJD is on that list.

This.
At this point I would take him over Peterson (too banged up), Rice, McCoy, CJ1K, and yes probably even Gore, Id maybe take Arian Foster over him.
wait for it...
MJD is the best overall back in nfl

he is good for short distance he can break one and take it the distance and can cath from backfield

i hope he stays away from teams we play frequently

Good RBs are a dime a dozen.

lol

Who else were they going to give the ball to????

there is no way a 27 year old RB is worth a 1st round pick I dont care how great he was last year or that he didn't start his first couple of years.
RBs are done by age 30

Packers don't make trades like that. They build through the draft.

Patriots don't need him.

Atlanta, Detroit, New York Jets... though Atlanta is still recovering from the Julio trade.

Packers don't make trades like that its true, but this is like payton manning, your going to at least evaluate him. An considering they are the worst running team in the league, with the best passing offense, you make that move for MJD an you just added number one running back in the league. If they make that move there in the superbowl. I mean this could be like the colts trading faulk off to the rams. This is very scary moment for us, if he does get ship off to an nfc team like the packers. But i don't think the owner will trade him, I think this guy has balls, even if he does he won't give him to an afc team. Really, the only move MJD has is to pull palmer and say he will just retire.

I'm telling you it is HIGHLY uncharacteristic of Ted Thompson to trade for this high-caliber of a player.

Example... they could have had Marshawn Lynch a couple years ago for next to nothing, and they were like "Nah mang, we're good."

I'm telling you... Ted Thompson don't trade with no one.
First off thats Marshawn Lynch, you mean this guy, Lynch had stayed out of trouble since being traded to the Seahawks, from the Buffalo Bills in 2010. Before that, however, he pleaded guilty to a traffic violation and admitted to driving away after hitting a woman with his car in 2008. He also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge in 2009, leading to a three-game suspension by the NFL. An he also just got arrested for a DUI, just this year.... Please that was character issues is why they passed, because he's a nut case.

O this is so not the case with MJD, he's a great role model, an active member in the community, an all he simply wants is to be paid. He lead the league in rushing with a rookie qb starting, which means every team game planned to stop him, an none could. Why Lynch was pleading guilty to gun charges in 2009, Drew had a performance that tied Hall of Famer Barry Sanders' record of rushing for two touchdowns in a single game of 75 yards or more, which was set by Sanders in a Week 7 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 12, 1997. Jones-Drew became the third player to share the record, as San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore, also tied Sanders' record in a Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks during the same season.

Your point invalid

The last great packer running back they traded for, that was Ahman Green, since than they haven't been able to get anyone to fill that role...The packers running back starks is injured, so they signed Cedric Benson who looked like he wouldn't even play in 2012. lol They will be picking at the bottom of the draft anyways, you add a top 5 running back, for say a first rounder well that pick just became pick number 32 with MJD on that team. The giants stoped the run last season, an forced Aaron to pass, an they pin back there ears an knocked the crap out of him. That leaves a very bitter taste in your mouth as G.m. an as fans. One game an they were taken out. You add MJD an that running game won't be stop it will make that team even more deadly. Aaron Rodgers would be more dangers, they would have to respect the run, which makes the playaction dangers, an giving Aaron rodgers busted coverages will give nightmares to defensive cords.

Besides, "Green Bay Packers, Inc., has been a publicly owned, non-profit corporation since Aug. 18, 1923, when original articles of incorporation were filed with Wisconsin's secretary of state.A total of 4,750,937 shares is owned by 112,120 stockholders -- none of whom receives any dividend on the initial investment.The corporation is governed by a board of directors and a seven-member executive committee.... If the fans want him bad enough, just like we did jim, they will get him, they own the dam team...

No, my point still stands.

Ted Thompson does not make splashy trades. It's a known thing around the league. The build (almost stubbornly) through the draft.

Reread the post i edit, Ted Thompson doesn't own the team, the fans do... We went nuts over Jim, if they go nuts over MJD it's game over, an Ted will make that trade. Watch out for the mob, he doesn't an they get knocked out after one game in the playoffs, it will be Ted Thompson who will have his head on the line, an your not going to get a Top back in the bottom of the draft, an they have a better chance to trade for MJD than to trade up to get one... Same with the pats, they can't find tom a running game either, because they always pick so late....

Another example, Dan Marino, you can have the greatest qb ever on your team, but without a running game your one dimensional an teams will stop the run, force the pass an eat you alive...

Another example, Niners, we stop the run, we force teams to be one dimensional an pass, which is why we win so many dam games last season.

Sometimes you have to take a risk, an in this case, MJD risk is very very small risk, an the payoff could be hugh. Come on trade a 1st or even 2 seconds for a running back that gets you another SUPERBOWL WIN, or get knocked out of the playoffs, because if the packers play us without him, were going to stop the run, and let aldon and justin an raymac, an brooks go to town on Aarons ass.

I hope they don't do the trade, that just makes it easier for us to get a shot for another Ring ourselves..

The Packers fan have no say in roster moves. If Ted Thompson sees fit to trade for him then he will, if it's a steep price, for a almost 30 year old back, a 1st is way way too much. He is gonna slow down. He has been the workhorse for a few years, it all goes downhill fast for those backs.

Thank you AB for saying it so I didn't have to.

If I were Ted, I'd throw the Jags a 2nd, a 3rd, and James Jones for MJD. But I'm telling you... the Packers will NOT budge on this. They're also pretty high on backup Alex Green, who was injured last year.

Well they may not make the roster moves, an we had no control over getting jim... RIGHT! It's a mob, he's 27 less wear on his body than any other running back. An Gore hasn't slowed down an he's had 2 knees blown, an a hip fracture.

Fine lets end this 30 year old wall right now!!!

There are a very select few running backs that have broken through the 30-year-old wall, but no back has ever rushed for more than 1,000 yards in three seasons after their 30th birthday is b******t.

Example, For eight years, George piled up the carries and the yards. Not once in his first eight seasons did he carry the ball fewer than 312 times or rush for fewer than 939 yards. That includes a decent season as a 30-year-old.

Example, Fred Jackson... He's 6'1 215 with pads on lol he's 31

Examples, Walter Payton, Payton ran for over 1,000 yards in 10 of his 13 NFL seasons, with three of those 1,000 yards season occurring when he was ages 30-32. Ricky Williams ran for over 1000 yards at 33... Warrick Dunn, had a surprisingly lengthy career for such a small player at a position that takes a huge beating, Dunn ran for over 1,000 yards in 2005 and 2006 when he was 30 and 31, he's 5'8 an 180... Franco Harris, ran for over 1,000 yards in 1983 when he was 32. Thomas Jones, Jones has run for over 1,000 yards since 2005, with the 2009 season as his best statistically at the age of 31, at 32 in a reduced role ran for 896 yards for the chiefs.

Examples, John Riggins, He ran for over 1,000 yards three times after the age of 30, with his final two coming at the ages of 34 and 35. Tony Dorsett, His last year of rushing for over 1,000 yards came in 1985 when he was 31 years old. Emmitt Smith, He ran for over 1,000 yards from 1999-2001, and in those three years he was ages 30-32.

Examples, Barry Sanders, Ending his career short at the age of 30, Sanders ran for 1,491 yards as a 30-year-old and he would have easily ran for 1,000 yards at 31, 32, and who knows for how long.Tiki Barber, Barber ran for over 1,000 yards in five of his last six years before retiring.The final two years in 2005 and 2006, were indeed his best and he was 30 and 31 respectively.Barber could have continued to run at a high level, but instead called it quits while he was on top of his game.
Examples Marcus Allen amassed 17,654 yards of total offense and scored 145 total touchdowns during his 16 years as a running back. Ricky Watters, In 1999 and 2000, Watters ran for over 1,000 yards when he was 30 and 31 years old. Curtis Martin, Martin ran for over 1,000 yards in 2003 and 2004, when he was 30 and 31, and it should be noted that as a 31-year-old in 2004, Martin ran for nearly 1,700 yards, and in his final season he still got 735 yards.

An last but not least the man who MJD replaced, Fred Taylor, 1,000 yards in 2006 and 2007, when he was 30 and 31 respectively. That man keeped MJD from taking a hugh pounding, an i think has another 3 years before turning 30, plus his body has the pounding of a 25 year olds because of Fred Taylor... O my God did you just watch the berlin wall fall down again.

GoldDigger - "Look at all these old RB's that were still productive when they were 30."

AB & Nick - "Dude, that's all really great, but THE GREEN BAY PACKERS and TED THOMPSON aren't going to pull the trigger regardless of his age."

This is a known thing with the Pack. They never make splashy trades. Again, I could MAYBE see a 2nd and James Jones, but I think it's very unlikely.

There are a very select few running backs that have broken through the 30-year-old wall, but no back has ever rushed for more than 1,000 yards in three seasons after their 30th birthday is b******t.

Example, For eight years, George piled up the carries and the yards. Not once in his first eight seasons did he carry the ball fewer than 312 times or rush for fewer than 939 yards. That includes a decent season as a 30-year-old.

Example, Fred Jackson... He's 6'1 215 with pads on lol he's 31

Examples, Walter Payton, Payton ran for over 1,000 yards in 10 of his 13 NFL seasons, with three of those 1,000 yards season occurring when he was ages 30-32. Ricky Williams ran for over 1000 yards at 33... Warrick Dunn, had a surprisingly lengthy career for such a small player at a position that takes a huge beating, Dunn ran for over 1,000 yards in 2005 and 2006 when he was 30 and 31, he's 5'8 an 180... Franco Harris, ran for over 1,000 yards in 1983 when he was 32. Thomas Jones, Jones has run for over 1,000 yards since 2005, with the 2009 season as his best statistically at the age of 31, at 32 in a reduced role ran for 896 yards for the chiefs.

Examples, John Riggins, He ran for over 1,000 yards three times after the age of 30, with his final two coming at the ages of 34 and 35. Tony Dorsett, His last year of rushing for over 1,000 yards came in 1985 when he was 31 years old. Emmitt Smith, He ran for over 1,000 yards from 1999-2001, and in those three years he was ages 30-32.

Examples, Barry Sanders, Ending his career short at the age of 30, Sanders ran for 1,491 yards as a 30-year-old and he would have easily ran for 1,000 yards at 31, 32, and who knows for how long.Tiki Barber, Barber ran for over 1,000 yards in five of his last six years before retiring.The final two years in 2005 and 2006, were indeed his best and he was 30 and 31 respectively.Barber could have continued to run at a high level, but instead called it quits while he was on top of his game.
Examples Marcus Allen amassed 17,654 yards of total offense and scored 145 total touchdowns during his 16 years as a running back. Ricky Watters, In 1999 and 2000, Watters ran for over 1,000 yards when he was 30 and 31 years old. Curtis Martin, Martin ran for over 1,000 yards in 2003 and 2004, when he was 30 and 31, and it should be noted that as a 31-year-old in 2004, Martin ran for nearly 1,700 yards, and in his final season he still got 735 yards.

An last but not least the man who MJD replaced, Fred Taylor, 1,000 yards in 2006 and 2007, when he was 30 and 31 respectively. That man keeped MJD from taking a hugh pounding, an i think has another 3 years before turning 30, plus his body has the pounding of a 25 year olds because of Fred Taylor... O my God did you just watch the berlin wall fall down again.

GoldDigger - "Look at all these old RB's that were still productive when they were 30."

AB & Nick - "Dude, that's all really great, but THE GREEN BAY PACKERS and TED THOMPSON aren't going to pull the trigger regardless of his age."

This is a known thing with the Pack. They never make splashy trades. Again, I could MAYBE see a 2nd and James Jones, but I think it's very unlikely.

Yes good to see you know James Jones as we speak is being shopped, Never say never... Okay lets talk about TED THOMPSON, In terms of making trades, Ted Thompson of the Green Bay Packers does not make many that involve getting players who are currently on NFL rosters. Thompson has only done that on five occasions since 2005, when he became executive vice president,general manager and director of football operations. Thompson also has traded away players. He has done this seven times, with the most impactful being Brett Favre, who was traded to the New York Jets in 2008 for a third-round pick. The only thing Ted an the Packers would not be forced into is a bidding war for players services in free agency, which is not the Thompson way of doing business. Looks like he has no problems trading Picks, Players or for players, he just doesn't like to get into bidding wars over a free agents... So i brought down the wall, now i brought down this theory Ted doesn't have balls to make trades, he's got a player, an some picks to work with, an the cap space to add a player, an not have to fight for him in free agency..

Reread the post i edit, Ted Thompson doesn't own the team, the fans do... We went nuts over Jim, if they go nuts over MJD it's game over, an Ted will make that trade. Watch out for the mob, he doesn't an they get knocked out after one game in the playoffs, it will be Ted Thompson who will have his head on the line, an your not going to get a Top back in the bottom of the draft, an they have a better chance to trade for MJD than to trade up to get one... Same with the pats, they can't find tom a running game either, because they always pick so late....

Another example, Dan Marino, you can have the greatest qb ever on your team, but without a running game your one dimensional an teams will stop the run, force the pass an eat you alive...

Another example, Niners, we stop the run, we force teams to be one dimensional an pass, which is why we win so many dam games last season.

Sometimes you have to take a risk, an in this case, MJD risk is very very small risk, an the payoff could be hugh. Come on trade a 1st or even 2 seconds for a running back that gets your another SUPERBOWL WIN, or get knocked out of the playoffs, because if the packers play us without him, were going to stop the run, and let aldon and justin an raymac, an brooks go to town on Aarons ass.

I hope they don't do the trade, that just makes it easier for us to get a shot for another Ring ourselves..

The Packers fan have no say in roster moves. If Ted Thompson sees fit to trade for him then he will, if it's a steep price, for a almost 30 year old back, a 1st is way way too much. He is gonna slow down. He has been the workhorse for a few years, it all goes downhill fast for those backs.

You're using Favre as evidence.

And James Jones isn't being shopped. I mentioned it as a hypothetical.

Goodnight.
